CDPAP gives Medicaid beneficiaries an alternative to receive home care services. CDPAP is a state Medicaid program for eligible beneficiaries. The goal of this plan is to give the consumer more control over the care they receive and how it is provided. So, how does it work? When starting home care services, the consumer chooses a family member, friend or neighbor who wants to be cared for. The consumer has the power to determine the day and time they wish to receive the service. These were functions that were normally assigned to an agency.
